Publisher Ubisoft and developer Ubisoft Montreal announced Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is the biggest Assassin’s Creed launch in history. It sold through more units in its first week than any other Assassin’s Creed game. 

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is also the top-selling Ubisoft PC launch ever, driven by all-time record Ubisoft Store sales.

"We are truly delighted by the enthusiastic response from players and want to thank the fans for their incredible support," said Assassin’s Creed Valhalla producer Julien Laferriere in a press release.

"Delivering this game amid a global pandemic was a true tour de force by our teams and it’s fantastic to see players enjoying the game so much. Launch is only the beginning and we have robust content plans for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla that will keep players immersed in their epic Viking saga for a long time to come."

Games industry said in UK: 42% of the game's sales came on PS4, and 18% came on PS5, despite the latter machine not coming out in the UK until next week. The rest of the sales (40%) came with the Xbox version - so a 60/40 split.

Interesting. Almost all the marketing material I have seen saw for Valhalla was tied to Xbox (understandably Microsoft tried to emphasize Valhalla as the big launch blockbuster since they don't have a first party one and I guess they paid Ubisoft a good amount for the collaboration). As such you might say they failed when 60% of the sales still are on Playstation, but the UK is Playstation-land, so I guess both Ubisoft and Microsoft are happy with this result.

That will teach them not to release buggy versions of their game but instead delay it until it's polished and ready. We the consumer have ruled again! (...yes, I'm just as guilty, I bought it too...)

I'm impressed, I thought the setting was much less interesting than the last two games, and it seems everybody complained about how long Odyssey was. Did not expect such success.

Congrats Ubisoft. Still waiting on Amazon to send me the Series X I preordered in September so that I can play it.
